Burglar Bill Synopsis

Burglar Bill is an entertaining picture book by the iconic British husband and wife picture book team Janet and Allan Ahlberg, creators of Peepo! Who's that creeping down the street? Who's that climbing up the wall? Who's that coming through the window? Who's that? ... It's Burglar Bill. Burglar Bill lives all by himself in a tall house full of stolen property. Every night (after eating his stolen fish and chips) he goes out to work... stealing things. But one day, Burglar Bill steals something very unexpected indeed! The Janet and Allan Ahlberg classic is the perfect bedtime story for all little readers everywhere. Allan Ahlberg has published over 100 children's books and with his late wife Janet, created many classics such as: The Jolly Postman Cops and Robbers Funnybones Each Peach Pear Plum Peepo!

The Good Book Guide Review

Every night Burglar Bill goes out to work, stealing things. One night, by mistake, he steals a baby. . . A ridiculous story full of affection, especially Burglar Bill caring for his stolen baby and teaching it to say 'run for it.'
